Auto Injuries Q & A

What are the most common auto-collision injuries?

Injuries to your head, neck, back, and chest are among the most common auto injury. Head injuries often leave people with concussions and with headaches that last for months – sometimes years – after being involved in a collision.

Traumatic brain injuries and spinal-cord damage are also common in serious collisions, and other common injuries include:

  • Whiplash and other soft-tissue injuries to muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • Herniated (or bulging) discs in your neck and back
  • Chest injuries
  • Broken bones in your arms and legs

Before beginning treatment, Dr. Skinner expertly evaluates your injury and takes a personalized, whole-person approach to developing a comprehensive treatment plan. He prescribes natural therapies to restore your body to its optimal health and function.

And, if you need care beyond physical therapy and chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Skinner works with a referral network of trusted medical specialists to ensure that you get the expert treatment you need to alleviate pain and heal your injuries.

How can a chiropractor help me heal from an auto injury?

Injuries from a car or motorcycle collision can surface weeks or months after the incident and can persist even longer if left untreated. Dr. Skinner performs a complete physical and neurological exam to determine the extent of your injuries so he can create a customized rehabilitation program. He can prescribe a series of gentle chiropractic adjustments complemented by physical therapies and progressive exercises to restore mobility and function.

Chiropractic care is especially useful in relieving the symptoms of whiplash as well as any other type of back or neck pain after an auto injury. Dr. Skinner treats your symptoms with natural therapies, as well as addressing the underlying causes of your pain or loss of range of motion in a particular joint or muscles.

The goal of chiropractic care after an auto injury is to alleviate your immediate pain while helping you heal from injuries over the long term.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care after an auto injury?

Since Dr. Skinner is specially trained to treat back and neck pain without the help of pharmaceuticals, one of the benefits of chiropractic care after an auto injury is drug-free treatment.

Most adults don’t want to become dependent on taking pain pills to get through their daily activities, and expert chiropractic care offers a natural, drug-free solution for prolonged pain relief.

Another benefit is that chiropractic care combines physical therapies and rehabilitative exercises that often relieve painful symptoms faster than medications can. Medications mask your pain, so when the drugs wear off, your pain returns. Chiropractic therapies address the underlying issues of your injuries so your body heals itself, often in just a few weeks.

If you were injured in an auto collision, the sooner you seek treatment, the sooner you’ll be on the road to a full recovery. Call the office today or schedule an appointment online.
